There are currently 12.1 million Atara Biotherapeutics stocks held short by investors – that's known as Atara Biotherapeutics's "short interest". This figure is 3.7% up from 11.7 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Atara Biotherapeutics stocks can be evaluated.

Atara Biotherapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Atara Biotherapeutics's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Atara Biotherapeutics stocks currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Atara Biotherapeutics stocks traded daily (recently around 916927.23823976). Atara Biotherapeutics's SIR currently stands at 13.18. In other words for every 100,000 Atara Biotherapeutics stocks traded daily on the market, roughly 13180 stocks are currently held short.

However Atara Biotherapeutics's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Atara Biotherapeutics stocks, or, against the total number of tradable Atara Biotherapeutics stocks (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Atara Biotherapeutics's short interest could be expressed as 0.14% of the outstanding stocks (for every 100,000 Atara Biotherapeutics stocks in existence, roughly 140 stocks are currently held short) or 0.1979% of the tradable stocks (for every 100,000 tradable Atara Biotherapeutics stocks, roughly 198 stocks are currently held short).

A SIR above 10% would generally be considered pretty high, pointing to a potentially pessimistic outlook for the stock price and a discouraging interest in betting against Atara Biotherapeutics.
